The sensational Lang Lang returns to Meymandi Concert Hall for one night only to perform with the North Carolina Symphony.

On February 28, Lang Lang—who was previously scheduled to perform the Bartók Piano Concerto No. 2—made the artistic decision to instead share with our audience the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor.

Special Event Concert: Strings at Kings
Date: March 10, 2017
Concert Sponsor:
Featuring:
Program: Caroline Shaw: By and By
Caroline Shaw: Valencia
Mozart: String Quintet in C Major, K. 515

Simplicity and complexity are at play in this casual concert featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw and members of the North Carolina Symphony.

The underlying intricacy of the orange inspired Shaw’s string quartet, Valencia. Simplicity at the surface similarly conceals the depth of invention in Mozart’s String Quintet No. 3—often considered his greatest work of chamber music. Shaw’s By and By, for voice and string quartet, takes the lyrics of some of her favorite old bluegrass and gospel songs and transforms them into something more contemplative, enveloping the words with dark, gentle string textures.

“There is something exquisite about the construction of an ordinary orange. It is a thing of nature so simple, yet so complex and extraordinary.” –Caroline Shaw, composer

Special Event Concert: Kennedy Center Bon Voyage!

Concert Sponsor:
Featuring:
Program:
Ward: Jubilation Overture
Caroline Shaw: Lo
Mason Bates: Rusty Air in Carolina
Sarah Kirkland Snider: Hiraeth
Ward: City of Oaks

The North Carolina Symphony brings our musical culture into the national spotlight, at SHIFT: A Festival of American Orchestras in Washington, D.C., at the end of this month. NCS is one of just four American orchestras selected to participate in the inaugural year of this prestigious festival in our nation’s capital!

Before we head to D.C., we’ll preview our programs for you here at home—don’t miss the chance to hear these works by composers with ties to our state, before we perform at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Smithsonian’s Kogod Gallery.

In various ways, each of the works on this program represents our home state. Mason Bates took inspiration from summer nights in Brevard, North Carolina; Caroline Shaw grew up in Greenville, North Carolina, where some of her earliest musical experiences were hearing the North Carolina Symphony; Sarah Kirkland Snider recalled childhood visits to her grandparents in Salisbury, North Carolina in her multimedia work; and Robert Ward spent more than four decades in North Carolina, on faculty at the University of Winston-Salem and Duke University. By embracing artists who know and love our state, we become a part of creating and curating a collective understanding of North Carolina’s unique culture and the communities that we serve.

Patrons who would like to hear the program in the main Concert Hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts can find more information here.

Additional concerts featuring selections from our Festival program, including Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw playing her own work, will take place on March 11 in Raleigh, on March 12 in New Bern, and on April 1 in Southern Pines.
